Available are 377km of mini sparker data collected during the September 1977 cruise of the research vessel Annandale over the Baltimore Canyon Trough area.
The prime purpose of the cruise was to obtain vibracores at selected locations across the Continental Shelf. The samples and seismic profiles were collected to study the origin and possible geologic hazards of a broad sedimentary terrace that lies just south of the Hudson Channel.
Information about the cruise can be obtained from Dr. Harley J. Knebel, U.S. Geological Survey, Woods Hole, Massachusetts 02543. The original records are on file at the U.S. Geological Survey's Data Library in Woods Hole. Microfilm copies of the seismic profiles may be purchased from the National Geophysical and Solar Terrestrial Data Center (NGSDC), in Boulder, Colorado 80302.
